Young Enterprise is a fantastic opportunity offered by the Department of Business Education.
What we offer is Young Enterprise Scotland's well-known Company Programme. This is the ultimate business and enterprise experience for S5/S6 pupils.
The pupils set-up and run their own company throughout the academic year with support from their lead teachers and Young Enterprise Scotland staff. They develop a wide range of skills and receive an invaluable entrepreneurial experience. At the end of the academic year, the Young Enterprise Companies compete on a local, regional, national and European level to be crowned Company of the Year.
This year the Company Programme is offering the opportunity for young people to achieve a Higher Qualification from being part of the programme, which will be extremely useful for the young person, if they choose to take part in this. Young Enterprise is also an excellent addition to any young person’s personal statement for University and College, it shows commitment and passion of Business Management and being part of a team.
Over the last two years we have had great success with our first ever team Peggie’s (who made it to the Scottish finals!) and Concrete Jungle who had an extremely successful evening at the Fife finals last year, winning many awards. This year we hope to have the same success for our new company – Shelf Life. Check out their social media to see how they are progressing (Instagram – @shelflife_ye Twitter –@shelflife_ye Facebook - @Shelflife_ye)!
